In backend I use English as my main language. In all of my pages, products, I create English version first, then use WPML to translate to Thai language. So basically I do everything in English and English first.

But for visitor, currently when typing in, it directs to But I want it to direct to As 99% of my visitors are using Thai.

Thank you

Welcome to WPML Support forum.

I'm afraid specifying default language for visitors is not a feature of WPML yet, and would need custom coding which is beyond the scope of our support.

Although, you may use WPML browser language redirection but it has it's own limitations as WPML will do this language redirect only once and then not redirect anymore.

You can read more about it here:

If you need further assistance with this, we recommend contacting our 3rd party contractors that are familiar with WPML. You will get the custom assistance you need to get on with your project.

Kind regards,
